dell specifically focused on this issue this past summer to south america. we're all aware of the iranian threat or their proxies' activity here in this hemisphere. whether it's the thwarted assassination attempt last year where the operatives of the iranian revolutionary guard were trying to use mexican drug cartel connections to enter the united states, to assassinate the ambassador from saudi arabia , or we're aware of hezbollah recently being revealed that hezbollah had a terrorist training camp or a training camp of some origin in nicaragua, here in this hemisphere. last week the iranian deputy foreign minister for europe and the americas visited cuba, venezuela, bolivia and uruguay. this follows the iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad's frequent trips to the region. most recently iranian naval commanders have expressed their intent to extend iran's maritime presence into the atlantic ocean, closer to the coastlines of the u.s. with this piece of legislation, we seek to protect u.s. citizens from threats from iran and defend american interests and assets here in this

south since reconstruction, and the only african-american senator currently serving. >> the future is incredibly bright for america. we have our challenges. we have things that we have to overcome. but, boy, does the future look great in south carolina. >> so what does the future hold for the senate which we'll see 13 additional newcomers. will it actually get things done? >> let's bring in republican strategist and former santorum adviser jim brenburger. and steve, let me start with you. the congressman is going to be among five new republicans, including five women. >> first of all, the new senator is actually very conservative. and i think that's good for the party because i think in the most recent elections, we lost sight of the fact that we have to talk to a lot of constituencies. we don't always represent all the people that we should. by bringing in somebody who is not only african-american, but conservative african-american, it gives us a new messenger, and i think that's very, very important to our party. >> well, in both houses, steve, you have a changing demographic. mo

led. he has been consistent and transparent. that is why there is no way to have another in america. thankfully we do not lose a jim demint. we saw him going to a bigger opportunity to influence america. i look forward to working with senator lindsey graham. there is no one else in south carolina. he understands foreign affairs are real. i look forward to learning more about foreign affairs. i will also say that over the last two years i've had the privilege of gaining a new family. we do not look alike but sometimes we do. everyone from joe wilson who we refer to as the scoutmaster and jeff duncan who is not here with us, i have been afforded the great opportunities in the world to serve in the house of representatives. what has made more meaningful is to have served with these four guys and our scoutmaster. i look forward to continue to build. i have not won anything yet in the senate. i have to run for reelection in 2014. i look for to the opportunity to introduce myself to citizens throughout this great state. the future is incredibly bright for america. we have our challenges.
